Re: Okular "Could not open ..."

Have you tried reinstalling okular? From a Google search, I see some others have had this problem. Can't say if a reinstall will fix it, but worth a try.

Re: Broken UI after package updates

All I know is Timeshift which you can find in Software Manager. Backup Tool is in the Mint Menu, but I've never used it. Maybe someone will offer more.
